Rockies Open Series With Win

By  | 

DENVER - (AP) Dexter Fowler tied a modern-day rookie mark with five stolen bases as the Colorado Rockies ran their way to a 12-7 win over the San Diego Padres on Monday night.

The fleet-footed Fowler gave the Padres fits all night, becoming the first rookie to steal that many bases since Damian Jackson on June 28, 1999. That contest also involved Colorado and San Diego.

The game was halted in the sixth inning when Brad Hawpe was hit in the neck by San Diego catcher Nick Hundley's throw to second.

Hawpe was taken off the field in a cart and then to a hospital with a possible concussion.

Jason Grilli (1-1) picked up the win in relief.

Chris Young (2-1) gave up a career-high eight runs in just three innings.
